Aw, i'm planning to leave earlier in May, aroundf the 5th wx permitting, though many leave after me.
One good idea if in St Martin
would be to bring a mobile VHF
and tune into the cruiser net at 0730 (yeah, i think it's a bit dang early as well!) and/or meet up with lots of us at Barnacles
Bar on Wednesdays from 5pm and /or make contact on Ch14 with a mate here called Mike by calling up boat "Quinn" also on ch14, and he'll be very attracted to your offer of transat brain-picking for beer. He is different sorta boat tho - i go with 4/5 of us on 50ft cat - he singlehander on 28footer but he's into double figures on atlantic crossings between st martin and canaries
eastbound, more southerly route
westbound. Or chat here. Or email
me on noteasytoremember at hotmail dot com which would save the beers until of course we eventually meet and then hopefuly the beer will have accrued interest, possibly, albeit picking my brain wouldn't realistically attract a huge beer fee, really...
